There’s no doubt that Amandla Stenberg is an impressive high schooler. Already a well known actress, activist, and all around role model, the 17-year-old can now add filmmaker to her lengthy set of skills. Today, Stenberg shared her first short film, Blue Girls Burn Fast, which she made as part of her NYU college application. The film follows Andy, a foster teen who is fed up with family life and school until meeting her neighbor Lea, who shakes up her life. Stenberg shows her immense talent through the film, which will surely get even better once she starts at the film school in the fall. Watch the film in full above.
